Daisy and Poppy sit and wait for their treat

Such polite little pigs!

Daisy and Poppy have learned the command “sit.” Their bottoms go down, their noses come up, and after a brief interval, they get a piece of carrot or apple or other delicious treat.

This is a great behavior to train your pig to do as it engages their mind while also making it easier on you to feed, clean, and interact with them. Pigs aren’t as inclined to jump up to greet people as puppies are, but they do get excited to see you, and you’re not likely to accidentally trip over your pig if she’s sitting for a moment while you get situated.
